Mike Schumer is an electronic musician who produces and performs as Antiserum. Widely known for his innovative and meticulously crafted sounds, rich euphoric beats and vast futuristic soundscapes, Antiserum’s style of West Coast bass music steeps heavily in hip hop, drum and bass, reggae, and heavy metal, often featuring cinematic vibes which balance between both dark and light environments.
His live performances deliver solid energy and loads of original and unreleased material straight from some of the most ambitious producers in the game. In 2008 he had the #8 best-selling dubstep track of the year on Beatport. In 2009 he launched his first tour in New Zealand and Australia. In 2010 he was signed to Caspa’s Dub Police label and Excision’s Rottun Recordings. 2011 has been a very busy year for Antiserum as he has toured the USA with Excision & Downlink on the Subsonic Tour playing 30 shows in 6 weeks. He just got back from his second Australia / New Zealand tour and is currently working on a South American tour for later this year. His most recent release on Caspa’s Dub Police label [UK] dropped in April of this year and features fresh collaborations with Los Angeles all-star 12th Planet & the multifacited ill-esha. Look out for new releases on Subway & Rottun later this year and a full length LP in 2012.
